Subject [jira] [Created] (DISPATCH-845) Allow connecting containers to declare their availability for link routes
Date Tue, 03 Oct 2017 16:18:00 GMT
Ted Ross created DISPATCH-845:

             Summary: Allow connecting containers to declare their availability for link routes
                 Key: DISPATCH-845
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DISPATCH-845
             Project: Qpid Dispatch
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Router Node
            Reporter: Ted Ross
            Assignee: Ted Ross
             Fix For: 1.1.0

In the case where a container wishes to connect to a router network and accept incoming routed
link attaches (i.e. become a destination for link routes), it is now quite complicated to
do so.  First, the connected router must be configured with a listener in the route-container
role.  Second, there must be linkRoute objects configured for each prefix or pattern for the
connected container.

A more efficient mechanism for dynamic/ephemeral link routes can be supported as follows:

* A container opening a connection to the router may provide a connection property that contains
a list of prefixes and/or patterns for link routes.
* During the lifecycle of that connection, the router maintains active link-route addresses
targeting that container.

This feature allows for lightweight establishment of link-route destinations without the need
for connection roles and configured link-routes with independently managed lifecycles (active,
inactive, etc.).
